Rosie the Dear and fawn 'Bambi'. Winter, 1942.
Bill Davids and Rosie.
Pearl and Bill Davids. Grandma Saaf's porch. 1938. The year they got married. Looks like Dad's enjoying himself with a glass of beer and Mom!

Pearl and Bill Davids on the Lake. 1945.
Davids Family.  Most of them.
Aunt Ruth Davids, Dad, Uncle Lew, Ricky Davids, Judy Davids, Teddy Davids, and 'chunky' Janet Davids.
Ricky and Judy Davids. 1953. Teeter house in the background.
Ruth Davids on the float with Ricky and Judy. Bill Davids and Janet in the water. Remember the old sawdust filled, canvas wrapped World War II floats with the lattice work platform? You're looking at one!
Teddy Davids and Doug Fuller (cousin) in the old wooden rowboat. Use to have to cork it with lamb's wool and pitch in the spring time. Looks like they're going blueberry picking or maybe that can is just to bail it out!
Teddy Davids fishing for 'the big one'. 1954. 
Having fun on an old sawdusk and canvas float.
Ricky Davids, Tommy Hughes, Patty Hughes.
Bill Davids fishing off of the rock shoreline.  Looks like he has his fishing hat on.  That old canvas fishing hat with the annual fishing license badges pinned to it.  You can see one in this photo.  Dad wore it water skiing one day; darn thing blew right off his head and is resting on the bottom now!
Bill Davids at the back door of the cottage in his classic white t-shirt.
A view of the original cottage from the 'front'. Fall. 1968. It even had an indoor 'liew'! But only the ladies could use it. The men had to use the 'WPA' outhouse.

Bertrand P. Brondi and Bill Davids in the second outboard motor boat. The first was a solid mahagony 14 foot runabout purchased on Lake Wallenpaupack. How we liked to water ski! Nice side burns, Bert! 1970.
